Back Street (1961)

Notes: 1/23/11
John Gavin was one of the sexiest actors ever.
Susan Hayward was one of the best star actresses of the 50s and 60s.
Vera Miles and John Gavin reunite after Psycho.
Vera is a monster of a wife. Susan needs to bitch-slap her.
Jean Louis costumes were Oscar nominated.
Vera Miles was certainly gorgeous. Movie is worth watching for the pretty cast.

Review: C+
Susan Hayward and John Gavin steam up the screen in this story of forbidden love. Fans of the two actors would be the best audience for some of the love scenes. Some memorable moments surround a series of highly dramatic and lushly photographed scenes between the two leads. Not completely memorable or interesting, but kept afloat by the assurance of the leads.
